10:01 pm
>> at lying he's the best i have ever ever seen. >> the biggest voting day of the year before election day. >> our campaign is funded by wall street and big-money interest. >> seven candidates. 12 states. over 1600 delegates up for grabs. so, could it all come down to this one night? >> it will be huge. >> from abc news this is super tuesday. now reporting from abc's times square election headquarters, george stephanopoulos. >> good evening, welcome to super tuesday. the biggest night of voting. the most surprising presidential race of our lifetime. a pivotal and dramatic moment for our entire country. the polls have now closed in every state but alaska. and the results we have show donald trump and hillary clinton in command of this race. donald trump has already five states. alabama. georgia, tennessee, virginia and massachusetts. ted cruz has won texas and oklahoma.
10:02 pm
clinton has won six states -- alabama, georgia, arkansas, tennessee, virginia and texas. she also won in american samoa. bernie sanders has won in vermont and oklahoma. first win outside of the northeast. i'm here with our abc political team. where this race goes next. we have our tip political correspondent correspondents. david muir is at the decision desk and on the scene with the candidates all across the country is our correspondents. the big story thus far, donald trump declaring victory. >> already, we've won five major states and it looks like we could win six, seven, eight or nine. it's really been great. i want to congratulate ted on the winning on texas. he worked hard on it. so, i congratulate ted cruz on that win.
10:03 pm
we're going to make america great again, folks. you know, i watched hillary's speech and she's talking about wages have been poor, everything's poor -- she's been there for so long, i mean, if she hasn't straightened it out by now, she's not going to straighten it out in the next four years. she wants to america whole again. make america great again is going to much better than making america great again. -- whole again. let's get a sense of that sweep by donald trump. he won in the south. alabama. he won in the state of alabama. he won in the state of georgia, tennessee, massachusetts, there you see him right there. there are the states right there. ted cruz coming in second. right there in georgia. and in the state of tennessee,
10:04 pm
ted cruz, second. marco rubio hitting that all-important 20% threshold. in the state of virginia, a little bit closer there, marco rubio came in second on the strength in northern virginia, on the strength of his showing in northern virginia. in the northeast, these big wins for donald trump. massachusetts, nearly 50% of the vote right there, 49%. and of course the state of vermont, as well. john kasich doing pretty well right there. but not well enough. i'm here with our team again. matthew dowd, let me begin with you, you look at the sweep of that victory, donald trump is re-creating the republican party. >> this is, i think, an extraordinary development of what's happened. every one, so many people thought he would burn out in the summer. he would fall in the autumn. frozen out when the votes in wimpbter started. now we're in spring, he's the dominant force in the party. he's gone through a hostile takeover of the republican
10:05 pm
he's basically beginning to fire the senior management of the republican party and and it's going to be very difficult for the republicans to be in the same place they were as a party in aftermath. >> jon karl, one thing he's been served by this entire campaign, divided opposition, going to remain divided, stunning every single one of these candidates say they're going to stay in. >> absolutely. this super tuesday is trump tuesday. not just because he comes out with a win huge delegate lead, but because every one of his main opponents -- kasich, rue owe, cruz, they all see a reason to stay in this race so donald trump, tonight, is stronger than ever, his opposition is as divided as ever. >> tom llamas, you have been with the trump campaign from the very beginning. i was struck with the difference with that victory address and the opening speech he gave at trump tower, a relatively
10:06 pm
>> but so much hasn't changed. it was a press conference. not a victory party. eric trump and chris christie were there. the rest were journalists covering donald trump. his strategy hasn't changed. he's campaigning in front of the cameras. he had a couple of jokes, a couple of jokes about ted cruz and hillary clinton and marco rubio. they're romping tonight and they hope to take this momentum into the future states. >> he took aim at hillary clinton and hillary clinton took aim at him in her victory remarks. >> because this country belongs to all of us not just those at the top! not just to people who look one way, worship one way or even think one way. [ cheers ] america prospers when we all prospers. america is strong when we are all strong.
10:07 pm
do. but, that work -- that work is not to make america great again, america never stopped being great. [ cheers ] we have to make america whole -- we have to fill in! fill in what's been hollowed out. >> make america great again versus make america whole. let's get a sense of hillary clinton's sweep tonight. winning six states. starting out in the south, hillary clinton n the state of alabama, 78% to 19%. georgia, 72% to 28%. tennessee, same story. 63% to 25%.
10:08 pm
sanders. in texas, this was big, hillary clinton also beating bernie sanders. strong hispanic vote there, as well. le arkansas, 69% to 27% for bernie sanders. in virginia, 64% hillary clinton and 35% for bernie sanders cecilia, they laid out those fire wahls in the south. >> the road to super tuesday success for hillary clinton was through the south. i was down there this week with her. that's clinton country. i interviewed so many voters, many had no idea who bernie sanders was. her sources are confident this nomination is hers. the path to nomination when you lose this much in delegate-rich states it doesn't add for bernie
10:09 pm
now. >> still waiting. matt gutman in florida with the clinton campaign right there. pretty call cows crowd there. florida such a key state both in the primaries and the general election. >> that's right, george, and the voting here has already started and begins in earnest for early ballots on march 15th. right on the wall over there, not many banners there, there's an american flag and a hillary fighting for us banner. hillary clinton is urging her supporters to vote as earlier as possible. >> bernie sanders is raising a loft money even on his losses right now. matt gutman, thanks very much. let's get more now as the voters were voting. david muir is at the decision desk and looking through those exit polls. you're seeing a difference between the parties and what the
10:10 pm
>> right, george, a split between republicans and democrats on this central question when asked -- should the next president come from outside of the establishment? 50% of republicans say they want an outsider as a candidate. of those republican voters who wanted the outsider, look at this, 63% went to donald trump. on the lip side, when asked, should the next president have experience in politics? 39% of republican voters said yes. of those who wanted experienced, 69% of democrats went to hillary clinton versus to outsider. >> david muir, thanks very much. let's talk to our experts now from both political parties. bill kristol, going to experience there, all of the fuel, all the anger, all the energy on the republicans to the outsiders.
10:11 pm
trump. some thought he would fade in summer, fall. very strong night for trump and ted cruz doing pretty well. >> one of the surprising things we have seen from donald trump across all of his victories so far, he's winning from every segment of the republican party, he's winning in moderates, winning among evangelical christians. >> on this highway there's a five-car pile-up happening right now. donald trump is winning across a number of idea logical segments. he's winning among voters who have less than a college degree. they're turning to donald trump as someone who's finally giving
10:12 pm
>> cokie roberts, everybody in washington scratching their heads. >> it's beyond scratching their heads. there's probably heavy drinking going on tonight among the politicians in washington. and we had the remarkable scene today of the leader of the senate and the leader of the house, republican parties, coming out and making statements, essentially against donald trump. because of the ku klux klan issue. you know, you look at these numbers, george and the republicans voting in all of these states, 90% say they're angry or dissatisfied. they're terribly worried about the future, much more so than on the democratic side. you see high numbers there, too, but much higher on the republican side. >> in fact, donna, what you're seeing on the democratic side a majority of voters wanting to continue the policies of barack obama. >> senator sanders had a great night in terms of winning
10:13 pm
delegates. as you know, this was a huge night for hillary clinton. she won georgia, alabama, texas, where most of the big delegates are located tonight. this democratic race will continue, we reward proportionate proportionately. >> letter la the whole idea on any one on the republican side can stop donald trump. i want to go to paula faris who's covering the donald trump campaign. >> it was pretty much the same line of questioning, one thing that stuck out to me was the significance of where he held this event in florida. it can't be lost on us that he had this event, his campaign headquarters in florida tonight, here at the mar-a-lago which he owns. really, this is a big night for him.
10:14 pm
couple of weeks, to have it here in florida, marco rubio's home state. a state where right now he has a commanding lead. >> all right, paula faris, thank you. we'll be talking to marco rubio when we come back. and the big question, can anyone stop donald trump now in the republican party? i take pictures of sunrises. it's my job and it's also my passion. but with my back pain i couldn't sleep... so i couldn't get up in time. then i found aleve pm. aleve pm is the only one to combine a safe sleep aid plus the 12-hour strength of aleve... for pain relief that can last into the morning. and now... i'm back. aleve pm for
10:15 pm
you totaled your brand new car. p nobody's hurt, but there will still be pain. p it comes when your insurance company says they'll only pay p three quarters of what it takes to replace it. what are you supposed to do? drive three quarters of a car? p now if you had liberty mutual new car replacement, you'd get your whole car back. p i guess they don't want you driving around on three wheels. smart. with liberty mutual new car replacement, we'll replace the full value of your car. see car insurance in a whole new light.

10:19 pm
we're back now with our coverage of super tuesday, 11 states voting for each party tonight. democrats and republicans. let's look who's won so far on the republican side, donald trump has won five states -- alabama, georgia, tennessee, virginia and massachusetts. on the democratic side, hillary clinton has won six states so far -- alabama, georgia, arkansas, tennessee, virginia and texas. bernie sanders has won his home state of vermont and the state of oklahoma. also on the republican side, ted cruz has won the state of oklahoma and his home state of texas. i want to go to byron pitts who's covering that campaign. byron. >> reporter: hey, george, cruz is addressing his supporters now. he said we're the only campaign
10:20 pm
donald trump and he asked, quote, i ask prayerfully the other candidates to consider join joining our campaign. the argument he's making he's the one republican who has beaten donald trump and the party can now unite behind him. a gentleman, the tallest man in the room, dressed in an an uncle sam costume and he said that this is our night. that we have shown that ted cruz is the alternative to donald trump. he also made a joke about marco rubio. he said, we have a saying in texas, all hat, no cattle. >> okay, byron pitts thanks so much. the only republican who has beaten donald trump so far. these nomination fights are all
10:21 pm
the for republicans, where do republicans stand? >> donald trump is cleaning house. donald trump, 147 delegates so far donald trump. swamping ted cruz, marco rubio and john kasich. when you add in the contests we have already seen, here's where the race stands -- you got trump, 229. only 81 for cruz, 47 for marco rubio. this means -- look at this -- this is where they have to go. even if marco rubio were to win in his home state of florida, get all 99 delegate there is, win in ohio, he still would be trailing donald trump. >> what that means, matthew, what you're looking at these campaigns, the reasons these other candidates are staying in, it's not just about them getting the number but preventing donald trump from getting that nominee. >> the results of tonight not only shown donald trump dominating is to quote, the
10:22 pm
turn, turn. their reason is to stay in this -- stop donald trump from getting to 1237. their goal, keep him under that and have a contested convention. >> think about that, keep him from getting a majority going into a convention. he would clearly have a huge lead going into a convention. somehow at the convention, they would take it from away from him? >> bill, if this were any other candidate, leading in the same way, we would say this is over. this candidate has the nomination. such a resistance within the republican party to donald trump. >> yeah, any other year the candidate would be qualified to be president. they were widely and broadly acceptable. half the republican voters in some of these states say they
10:23 pm
at the end of tonight, i was just looking at the ro jexs, it looks like donald trump will have less than 50% of the delegates selected so far. so, i don't know if everyone else has to say, you got 47% of the delegates. we got to get out. the race goes on. >> linsey davis, you're with the rubio campaign down in florida, march 14th is a must-win for him. what you're seeing in the crowd, more signs about donald trump than marco rubio. >> you're exactly right, marco rubio hasn't won a single state. he could finish out the night 0 for 15. you couldn't tell based on the energy he displayed here behind me. the crowd was equally excited. one of the first things out of his mouth was donald trump. he called him a con artist. state by state he said, look,
10:24 pm
the pundits want to call me an underdog. i will accept that. but this is a country of underdogs but we will win. he was looking ahead to the primary here in florida. he said, of course, he knows how to win here in florida. interestingly, the polls show donald trump leading. >> okay, linsey, thanks very much. marco rubio does join us right now. senator rubio, thanks for joining us tonight. you're still without a win, how can you get the nomination? >> thanks, george. george, you have followed this for a long time. we're going to take delegates, major number of delegates in every state tonight. we're waiting to see what happens in minnesota tonight. i was 15 to 20 points down in virginia, tonight, we're leave virginia with the same number of delegates as donald trump. the question tonight is, what happened to ted cruz's southern strategy? he was supposed to win iowa, which he did.
10:25 pm
the only thing he won was his home state of texas and neighboring state of oklahoma. >> he's beating you pretty handily? >> in his home state of texas, sure. here's the bottom line, the map from here on out, it gets better for us. his whole campaign was built on the southern strategy. he lost them all except for his home state. we on the other hand have shown growth. we feel really good about minnesota. i think looking forward at the map now and the states that are to come, we're going to start racking up some victories. when we get to winner take all, we love the way the map shapes up. the other point i would make, george, in most of these campaigns you have a front-runner. we have the opposite. we have people telling us, you must continue to fight on and
10:26 pm
you go to our website, marcorubio.com. record number of people signing up and people donating. >> senator, you're 15 points at least behind in florida, all of the -- >> i don't believe those polls. that was one poll. no, no. we have seen other numbers that indicate otherwise. we'll win florida, i'm confident of that. especially when we have two weeks to explain to the people of state what we're getting with donald trump, a world-class con artist. by the way, how could the republican party ever nominate someone who refuses to condemn the ku klux klan as he did repeatedly this week? he has no chance in the general election. a vote for donald trump is vote for hillary clinton. people are starting to realize it. tonight, he's underperformed the public polling. >> tom, you covered mr. trump and you're covering the other
10:27 pm
you're hearing this concerted anti-trump campaign in the last five day and that's right. it's unclear if the attacks really worked. senator rubio is going to fight hard for florida. but donald trump is in florida right now. he'll make a huge play for that state and senator ted cruz, the only person to beat trump, they're also focusing their efforts in florida. marco rubio is going to have a hard time in the sunshine state. before, he was way behind chris christie, he came back and he pretty charlie crist. it's unclear if he'll win. >> one of the questions, kristen, do other elements in the republican party now come together, concerted campaign in florida, in ohio, aimed directly at donald trump? >> to lot of the candidates understand that donald trump is
10:28 pm
but they're still viewing one another as big threats. you still have john kasich who's stim going to be in the race, he's at least hanging around for his home state of ohio. the same day of florida. what may be different now is to see all of these candidates being to prosecute the same case against donald trump. up until this point, you had ted cruz saying donald trump isn't conservative enough. this mish mash of arguments that haven't worked. now you have marco rubio prosecuting this case he's not the big guy fighting for the little guy, he's a con artist. he's not looking out for those voters. >> donald trump versus hillary

10:33 pm
10:34 pm
'60s, the anthem of the bernie sanders campaign. another improbable campaign, he gets two victories tonight. there's his crowd here in times square as well. an army of young people across the country, has done so well in this race so far, winning vermont and oklahoma so far. i want to go to david wright at the bernie sanders' have itry celebration in vermont. >> reporter: good evening, george. this was early night for bernie sanders. he came out, the first candidate coming out his one slam-dunk of the evening, his home state of vermont. yet he's much like some of the
10:35 pm
been talking to and about tonight. somebody who has to justify, rationalize his continued presence in the campaign. on the plus side, he said today that he will finish the night with hundreds of new delegates. and he also, his campaign announced new fund-raising totals today. for the second month in a row, they're outfund-raising hillary clinton. in february alone, he raised $42.7 million. most of that in small donations, averaging 27 buck ace piece. he has the means to continue in this fight. >> he has enough money to go all of the way to the convention if he wants to. david muir, you're going through the exit polls. >> take a look at this, hillary clinton led among men tonight. 53% to 45%. women voters on the democratic side, clearly, way out ahead of sanders. 65% to 33%. white voters tonight, hillary
10:36 pm
to 48%. black voters and latino voters, black voters, 83% to 15%. among hispanic voters, hillary clinton with 67%. senator bernie sanders with 33% of the votes. >> so you have more on how she built up those numbers in the south. >> in the south, she's crushing bernie sanders. in al texas, 40%. this was their strategy, spending a lot of time and money down there. 5 to 1 she's leading among african-american voters. bernie sanders said he's not going anywhere. he's defiant tonight. he's taking this past the convention until the very end. he has the money right now to go pretty far. >> jon karl, pretty big delegate lead for hillary clinton. >> it's a delegate tsunami for
10:37 pm
there's a lot more delegates to be allocated. she'll get a lot more. where things stand overall, if you include the four other contests, look at this lead she has. they have to go 1,462 delegates more to go. she has this huge lead built up over bernie sanders. the democrats, every single caucus and primary is por portion gnat. >> donna, an official in the dnc right now. you have won presidential campaigns for al gore. once you build up, even a small lead, hard for the challenger to catch up. >> that's because we reward based on democratic performance. i don't want to get too technical. that means, if you win a state like georgia, in atlanta and athens and albany comes in really large, you get an extra delegate. so, this is aed goo night for hillary clinton. no question that bernie sanders
10:38 pm
some other states. but she'll win a large chunk of delegates because she'll win those areas where the democratic performance is very, very high. >> and matthew dowd, she's got a bit of a balancing act right now. she hasn't put bernie sanders away yet. she has to keep one eye on him and one eye on donald trump on the republicans. >> i think she's turning full well -- we are moving toward a fascinating clash of titans. if donald trump continues to roll and hillary clinton continues to roll, you have the ultimate outsider, no political experience against the last political dynasty with a political resume that would be the envy of anybody. >> that's incredible. i want to bring that to nate silver, you have been going through statistics. you called the 2012 election on the nose.
10:39 pm
with the possible exception of matthew dowd, completely missed donald trump. >> i think there's nothing like donald trump in many decades of american politics. every 40 years or so, a party realignment where the coalition doesn't resonate with the voters anymore. i don't know if you call him a black swan or not. this isn't politics as usual. he's on track, he had a good night to win the republican nomination. >> nate silver, thanks very much. when we come back, ted cruz. he he's won two victories tonight and more on the possible matchups in the fall.

i want to thank donald trump -- that's a joke. that's a joke. but, guess what, stuff he's doing and others including cruz and others, he's making the american people look in the mirror and the american people are honest. when they look in the mirror, they see what's looking back at them. they know, there's no easy answer to them.
10:46 pm
right now, looking ahead to the general election. let's talk about that matchup now. cokie, you talked a lot of democrats right now, they think cruz are the ultimate solution to an enthusiasm gap. so far republicans have been turning out in the primaries with greater portions than democrats. >> donald trump has been making that possible for the democrats. particularly, the comments about the ku klux klan, but the stuff he said about mexico and all of that is likely energize hispanics and african americans, as we have seen tonight for hillary clinton, she did in even states when she won big, she still lost, though, to young people. she'll have to do something to energize them, to get them active for the general election. the other thing, george, that we have to watch, donald trump just goes in with a blujon and what happens to hillary clinton in as he does that, could be something
10:47 pm
>> okay, want to get more on this conversation. but we now have senator ted cruz joining us now. congratulations on your victories in texas and oklahoma tonight. donald trump is still getting the lion's share of delegates tonight. he's well on his way to the nomination? >> well, george, tonight was a terrific night. we had major victories in texas, which is as you know is the crown jewel of the super delegates. the most delegates of one state. we also had a terrific victory in oklahoma. but critically what we have seen, couple things happened, one w the delegates, we're seeing a sharp separation, unclear exactly where we're going to end up. trump somewhere around 400 delegates. we'll end up around 200 delegates. that separation really allows
10:48 pm
beat donald trump. i'll tell you a lot of republicans view, if we nominate donald trump it will be a disaster for republicans and a disaster for the country and what i think we saw tonight and i hope we'll see in the days to come is republicans unifying and coming together, we welcome supporters for other candidates aboard -- we need to build a coalition a team to ensure that the republican nominee -- >> senator -- that's what you're calling for, but marco rubio is staying in the race, john kasich is staying in the race and ben carson is staying in the race. >> george, every candidate will have to reflect on where the race is, they'll have to give it prayerful consideration. what is clear, if the race remains divided, donald trump's path to the nomination is much more likely, but if we unify, head to head, our campaign beats donald trump soundly.
10:49 pm
best interest of the republican party, if donald trump is the nominee, your former boss hillary clinton becomes the president, in all likelihood the republicans lose the house and we lose the supreme court for our kids and grand kids. i hope that republicans instead make the decision, let's come together, let's unite behind the only campaign that's beaten donald trump three times across the country. >> if donald trump gets the nomination, does the republican party break apart? >> well, i don't know if it breaks apart but i don't think donald trump wins. right now, he has enormous opposition to him. to be honest, right now, the media is using kid gloves on him. i think a lot of folks in the media are rooting for donald trump to be the nominee, the one candidate on the face of the planet that hillary clinton can
